Just GREAT!  Time owned: more than 12 months
Great antenna. If you want DXCC on 6, this is the antenna to have. As long as you put it together for the part of the band you want, it will be spectacular. If you build it for the middle of the band, it won't play well for the DX portion of the band. See the 2000 review that gave the antenna a 3. It is heavy. it is hard to put up etc but if you do it right and feed it with the best feedline, you will kick butt and take names. With this antenna, when Florida opens to Europe, I will blow the KW stations out of the water with 100w. Plus it gives you all that receive gain!

Con: Cushcraft was stupid enough to discontinue this antenna. Find a used one, easy rebuild, put it up and ease your way into 6M DXCC. 73 Gud DX! John KB4CRT/VP2MRT
